I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years. I offer Russian Language lessons/classes: Reading, Writing, Grammar, Conversation Language development, Pronunciation, Social Language Use. My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong instructor-to-students relationships. I think it is very important to study the Russian language in close connection with Russian culture. I try to choose topics that interest the students, help them feel comfortable and lower their anxiety about making mistakes.
About Aksana P.

PhD. in Russian Language and Literature, Immanuel Kant State University of Russia (Kaliningrad State University), Russia, 2002 Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Russian and Belarusian Languages and Literature (Diploma with honors), Belarusian State University, Belarus, 1995. I am a native Russian tutor. Now I live in NYC and teach Russian as a foreign language in CUNY.     I teach the Russian language from the very beginning - elementary, basic level - to higher levels.   The most important goal of my classes is that you enjoy our meetings by keeping interest and feeling the progress.   Individual approach to each student is the key point to success. We study the vocabulary, grammar, and situations related to the student's current activities. As a result all my students successfully use the learned skills for their professional or private life.   During my lessons, I'm trying to reach the best balance between speaking, listening, grammar, conversation and other aspects of the language.   I can help you understand the system of the Russian language, so that you were not limited by phrases that you learn during the lesson, but could make your own sentences, paragraphs, express your thoughts in different ways.   We will pay enough attention to grammar, pronunciation, reading and speaking.   I will explain to you the way Russians talk in their everyday life because some Russian foundations and manners differ from American ones.   As your personal instructor, I'm going to give you honest feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and design a curriculum that fits your needs.   I'll be happy to help you learn the Russian language. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions.   Thank you for your interest - I look forward to seeing you in my classes! Policy: All changes in the schedule (except emergencies) should be made 24 hours before the lesson, otherwise the lesson will be marked as missed.
